    Point the TV remote at her and press the mute button. Then tell her you can't use it because it dosen't work. :D

    Don't you know that a Woman is always right regardless, at least that's what my wife tells me and as long as that rule is followed, Peace is assured.

    Make a bet with her that you are right. Make it something good....

    Go to Radio Shack and buy a cheap decibel meter. Turn the volume up with the TV remote to a set number, take a reading. Turn it back down. Now do the same thing with the DirecTV remote, to the same set number, take a reading. Make sure it's during the same point in a show, best to use a recording due the variable volume of commercials and different programming.

    When they match....cash in on that bet.....

    That other thread really does not apply here. That man looked like was not a very good husband, father, or provider for his family. It seemed like all he thought about was himself. In this case, it is just a technical issue...and one in which she is dead wrong. To think that a TV "knows" that a different remote is sending the proper infrared signal (and it must be the proper infrared signal, as the volume does change) to it other than the one that came with the TV, is absurd. I know, in todays world, women think that they are always right. No one, man or woman, is always right.

    I guess it just boils down to is it worth a fight. Only the OP knows that.

    You need to pick your battles carefully. This one just doesn't sound like it's worth it. Let it go.
